This League Is Fixed


Recommended Posts

Why?

Because it just is. It gets more obvious every season.

Once again, it'll be Brady and Worthlessberger and maybe a magical finale from Manning.

The Networks write the script. The players do the acting. The officials do the EDITING.

I don't know if it's fixed in that sense. Just like NBA and MLB the refs & officials tend to favor the stars on marginal penalties and infractions. In another words things are more tilted in favor of the star players.

With the money that's involved you know its corrupt. Watch how good the Falcons will be when they open up the new stadium. Just watch.

Of course though... that wont have anything to do with us having made recent front office changes to our scouting and personnel departments, or the

fact that we have new coaches in place that will be entering into their 3rd season.

Nope.. it can't be any of the other circumstances that have changed... it has to be something that lacks any evidence or credibility of any sort.

Yep... that must be it.

So let me get this straight, your logic is that because we are opening a new stadium, we will be good?

Have you seen how piss poor the 49ers are playing?! Their record in their new stadium is 13-19... By NFL standards, that's horrible... Your logic is flawed...

So tennis isn't fixed either right. Up until a couple weeks ago people were saying the same thing you are. Now we have a huge scandal coming out of pro tennis because outside of the US, tennis is bet on heavily. Boxing also has the issue of fixing and people bet heavily on it. Lets look at college sports. Don't tell me you don't know there is cheating in college sports.

Believe what you will. I don't want to bully or condescend you for your faith that a huge corporation is not insuring larger profits. I couldn't care less who believes its completely fair or not.

The game is much different than it was 20 years ago. I find it harder to invest in the game when it has an appearance of chicanery. What I am surprised at is the amount of people who agree something is wrong this season across the NFL.

Apples and oranges. Tennis, as an organization isn't fixed, like more in here are saying the NFL is. Tennis has had some INDIVIDUALS be corrupted in some fashion or another, and mind you, not a single name or shred of evidence has been given to make the claims legit (though I honestly believe them without the evidence).

No one saying the league isn't fixed is saying everyone in the league is perfect. I'd guarantee there has been a ref or player who has thrown a game or at least tried, the statistical odds are in favor of that. But again, that is on an individual, not the entire organization. So use comparisons that are apples to apples. If the ATP(?) was indicated, which it is specifically not, then you could compare tennis' current situation to the theory that the NFL is fixed by the league. But because it is individuals, you simply can't.

While there might be some degree of corruption in any multi-Billion dollar entity, the term "fixed" implies that outcomes are predetermined, and there simply is no evidence even suggesting that in the NFL. Not enough to seriously charge such a thing, at least.

Ten years ago I would have passionately defended the integrity of the NFL, but critical analysis finally won-out. Very happy to see this thread continue, beause it will give notice to the NFL that more people are becoming aware. That is the only way things can change, only if they are forced to change! So thank you to those that disagree, without your input the thread would quickly go into oblivion.

It is rather interesting to NOTE that the 4 teams in the NFC/AFC Championship are teams that reside in states that have Casino gambling, or that is is an influx of revenue with advertising paid for "PERHAPS" by Casino money to Television stations and such.........

It's really interesting when you think about it. I have always felt like the TV Advertising companies that RESIDE in the areas or states that certain teams reside in kinda get a bit of a FAVOR when it comes to officiating calls and or a bit of an unfair advantage.

NFL is a business, and anyone who thinks otherwise is blind. But not only that, the NFL Itself is a "NOT FOR PROFIT ENTITY" meaning the NFL at the core does not pay taxes, and I personally think that just isn't right, yeah the NFL ITSELF SUPPOSEDLY makes no money even though the people running it gets paid MILLIONS, but the Team Owners have to pay TAXES. It's like the NFL ENTITY is setup like a church, this needs to change in my opinion, especially when there are people paying a lot of money to watch, season ticket holders and such.

Yeah, I think the NFL is the new WWF/WWE or whatever you wanna call it................ But will anything get done about it? No, it never will because the powers that be with our nation have decided that they feel it's a tradition rather than actually being fair on a per citizen basis as it should be.......... JUST MY OPINION..........

Pretty sure this changed like, two years ago.

It's pretty un-interesting when you realize that none of those states allow sportsbooks.

The NFL is not going to dare let Manning go down in this Superbowl as a loser nor let him come back for another season in which he will look old and run-down. He is a showpiece for them whose ad value will go on for years (similar to Montana) past his retirement.

I am almost ready to put down a bet on this it seems so certain. My only other logic is that they may want this game to be some kind of transfer of power from the old star to the young star with Manning having a great game but then Cam winning it on some last second miracle.

LOL!!!!

So, it's a conspiracy either way it goes.

Your thinking is sound, you should not bet on who you think logically is the strongest team, but rather on where the NFL Gods are putting their money.

I'm going with the old man! Makes a much better storyline, especially against the arrogance of youth which is how Newton has depicted himself this year. Makes a good theme, but the good guys are the Broncos, the 'white hats'.

Or the NFL wants Peyton to hang on for at least 1 more year so he can play for the Los Angeles Rams and put them on the map? That's a conspiracy that you can clinch too as well.

I'm pretty sure I saw multiple ads with Manning today, and even one with Joe Montana, like you mentioned. But I'm sure he really needs this one to remain relevant.

The league is fixed... it's clearly evident if Peyton wins... it's clearly evident if Peyton loses and this becomes the "passing the torch" game.

Why... it's just as evident as when they let the guy who defied and embarrassed the commissioner and took him to federal court win it last year. It's as evident as it was when they fixed the Giants super bowl win by paying off Tyree to make that catch using the Patriots player helmet.

It's all clear as a bell on a cold clear night.

So...if the Broncos win it, it's fixed. If the Panthers win it, it's fixed. #Logic

Tarnishing Brady's legacy last year was a very spry move by the league to throw us off of their trail. Unfortunately for them, some posters here saw right through their plan.
